Memorial day weekend has officially ended, and it feels like spring has fast forward to summer.Putting on sunglasses will not only complete your look this season is crucial.Wearing your sunnies will help deter the tiny wrinkles around your eyes.The reason for the small lines appearing around your eyes is when you spend too much time in the sun.As an additional bonus sunglasses helps the white in your eye, remain the same.If you go outside without eyewear, the sun can cause a burning sensation to the eyes.Within time, they become red and irritated.Before you put on your sunnies, make sure they fit your face properly.

The first thing you will want to do is identify your face shape. Take a look in the mirror to determine your if your face is in a form of heart, an oval, round or square.After you determine your face shape, you may pick out which style fits best for you.

Heart Shape Face

If you have a broad forehead and a precise jawline your face shape appears like a heart.

                                        Do ♥

 Try sunglasses that has details at the bottom of the frame. Other styles that you can rock is an almond or a sweet butterfly shape; it will help add to your face.

Don’t! ⊗

Please avoid any full oval and rectangular frames.

If you have defined features, high cheekbones, and your chin is slightly linear than your forehead, then your shape is similar to an oval-shaped.This face shape allows you to have more than one.

Oval Shape Face

 

Do ♥

An oval-shaped frame akin to the TOM FORD  shades in the photograph will match perfectly to your face shape.Other styles that you might fancy are rectangular, over-sized and circular.

Don’t! ⊗

As I mentioned before, any shape is ideal.However, you will like to keep in mind that your frames are as wide as your face.For example, if your oversize frames are taking over your face then get one slightly smaller.

Round Shape Face

If you have full cheeks, a narrow jawline, and forehead, your face shape is round.

Do ♥

When working with a round face shape, you can have fun with geometric sunglasses identical to the photo on top.

If you opportunity to lengthen your face, try square or rectangular styles.Or you can whip out the cat eyes which helps accuminate your soft features.

 Don’t! ⊗

 Avert from wearing over-large shades and any frames with big curves.

Square Shape Face

If you your face does not narrow much from the cheekbone to the forehead, nor from the cheekbone to the jawline then you have a square face shape.

                                                Do ♥

You can offset your sharper features with curvy shades. You can wear a modern cat eye with rounded edges that curve downward and get away with it!

Other styles that I recommend is aviators and a butterfly style.

       Don’t! ⊗

Leave square shaped frames on the shelf because they won’t work for you.The square on square look is just unflattering.

    I’m pretty sure I have a heart shaped or oval face. I know aviator shades look terrible on me. Great post. This will help me determine exactly which face shape I have..

    I love the YouCam makeup app! So fun! I need some new sunglasses, the ones I have, I love, but my daughter grabbed them off my face, dropped them on the ground, and that chipped the frame. Thanks for the great suggestions!
